Idea Factory International has released a new trailer for the upcoming Dragon Star Varnir. This trailer shows off the game’s battle system which is very different than other Idea Factory releases.
The Dragon Star Varnir website has been updated with the following information:
- Character Profiles: Faria, Monet, Chiquita and Pio
- System Update: Feeding the Little Sisters
Here is more about feeding the imoutos and some story bits straight from the press release:
FEEDING THE LITTLE SISTERS –
FARIA, MONET, CHIQUITA, & PIO
The new website update for Feeding the Little Sisters discusses a game system where players can obtain rare items or rare skills, but at a price! Whenever you return to The Witches’ Den base, you are met with the little sisters separate from your party members.
Each sister has a satisfaction meter, where giving them dragon meat or blood will increase the meter. Feeding the sisters can provide players rare items to use in-game.
However, feeding them will also cause dragon growth gauge will also begin to fill. Once the dragon growth gauge maxes out, a dragon will burst forth from the sister. Devour their dragon form to get rare skills!
This system forces players to choose between obtaining great power or the lives of the people you care about. The choice is yours!
Check out the character descriptions below!
Faria – The Eager Witch
The oldest of the younger witches in the den.
She’s always up for a challenge, and wants to join the elder witches in battle so very badly.
She’s very cold towards Zephy and has difficulty being honest with herself.
Monet – The Ditzy Witch
A lovable, ditzy witch who is always honest.
She lives in the den with the other witches and enjoys taking care of the flowers in the garden.
Chiquita – The Catty Witch
A young witch who lives at the den.
Her personality is a little strange, and she is very vindictive when talking to people.
She loves to explore.
Pio – The Wise Witch
A young witch who lives at the den.
Despite being the youngest witch, she is the most dependable.
She is extremely intelligent and loves to read.
In a world where the bones of an ancient beast tower over the land…
The Knight Zephy is part of an order whose role is to hunt down witches – people seen as cursed beings for giving birth to dragons.
When he is almost killed on one of these missions, two mysterious witches save him from the brink of death by feeding him dragon blood.
Granted new magic abilities by their efforts, he soon finds his fate intertwined with the witches and reluctantly joins them to fight against an Empire out to destroy his kind, ruthless dragon hunters, and a witch more powerful than any in existence.
Can they fight all this and save themselves, or will his new allies succumb to the dragon’s curse…?
3 Tiers to Fear – In this unique take on the classic turn-based battle system, players take flight and charge at dragons in three vertically-oriented tiers. Strategize how you position your party members as certain dragons have strengths and weaknesses depending on what tier you attack from. Some giant dragons can also swipe through all three tiers, so tread carefully!
Awaken Your Inner Dragon – When attacking an enemy during battle, players fill up their Dragon Gauge. Once maxed, they can transform and harness the power of dragons, drastically increasing their armor and unlocking abilities!
Welcome to Devour Hour – Once an enemy dragon is weakened, players can utilize the Devour skill to obtain a skill tree unique to that dragon. With multiple dragons roaming the land, players can explore different dragon skill trees and combinations that can lead you to victory!
Madness or Riches? – Three witches depend on you to bring them dragon’s blood as food. Starve them, and they go mad. Overfeed them, and they become a dragon! Will you keep them alive or sacrifice them to obtain rare items? The choice is ultimately yours, but each decision you make can change your ending.
Dragon Star Varnir will release on the PlayStation 4 in North America on June 11 and in Europe on June 14. There were 2 CGs censored for this release.
